Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2010

Posted on May 21st, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 661 comments

Welcome to the third Blogger’s Quilt Festival!  I’m so glad that you are here – and I hope that you plan to enter a quilt in the Festival! Everyone is welcome to participate, this is a relaxed festival with no judging, no gloves, and beverages are allowed, encouraged even!  :)

Many “Thank You’s” go out to our sponsors! They have been fun and gracious to work with in the weeks leading up to today.  And the prizes they are offering are so generous!  Be sure to visit each of the shops as you enjoy the show.  They each have a button to the right, and I have a list of prizes below the entries.

I have been so thankful to have my laptop while getting the details together this time around and I cannot wait to sit on the couch and take in all the inspiration!  I hope you have a comfy seat too – this may take a while.

While you are blog hopping – let me know if you see a quilter you would like to see featured on my blog.  I plan to continue the Friday features after the festival and always need more nominations!

Are you ready!?

To Participate : :
1 – Write a new post (old posts will be deleted).  Share one quilt, and it’s story.  Why you made it, why it is special to you, what you learned about quilting/yourself while making it.  The quilt doesn’t have to be brand new, never seen before on you blog – show what you like!

2 – In your post link back to the festival (posts without a link will also be deleted).  You can do this with a button, just copy and paste the code into your post, if all else fails.

3 – Share a link to your post, in the mr linky – be sure to post to that specific post please.  Right click on your post title, to copy link address, then paste it in the linky.

4 – Leave me a comment to be entered into giveaways.  Maybe you can tell me approximately how many quilts you have made so far.  Or if you finished a quilt just for the Festival.  Or how many quilts you have on your to do list.  It’s fun to learn something about you as I read all the comments :)

5 – Visit all the other quilters sharing their quilts and be inspired!

6 – If you are on flickr, consider adding your entry to the Group Pool, it’s great to see all the quilts in the gallery.

    Thank you for putting all this together again Amy, such a fun idea.

    Errm…….I've lost count of how many quilts I've made so far, probably in the region of 30 or so!

    My quilts to do list is probably about the length of a piece of string :P

    Thanks for organizing this! I haven't entered previously but am glad that I heard about it in time this time around!

    And to answer the questions… I've made four quilts total (two of them I don't really count since they were t-shirt quilts. I do have four quilts being worked on now… one that I'm absolutely in love with – but that I only started yesterday!

    I'm so excited to learn more about everyone else's quilts!

    Mary says:

    I have linked my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival as directed. I've been waiting all day to post about my favorite quilt. Thanks Amy for the chance to share my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt. I have many more that are still UFO's because I really worked intently on this quilt. I completed over 17 quilts last year, but my UFO's number in the hundreds.

    Denise says:

    Hi Amy, I am new to blogging but have been quilting for almost 30 years. When I saw your post earlier in the week, I was so excited to join this. Last night I remembered I could get my post together and then publish it first thing this morning before I went to my volunteer job. I didn't have to wait another day! YAY!
    Thanks for doing this. It looks like FUN!
    I'm off to save the world, one critter at a time. :-)

    So excited to be a part of this again! Thanks so much for all your hard work getting this organised. Have been racing to finish a quilt in time to include, so now I am going to take a deep breath and settle down to look at all the gorgeous quilts as they get added!

  36. 36
    bearpaw says:

    Too excited to read things properly. I think I must have made 40 – 50 quilts over the last 18 years – that doesn't seem very many compared to some people!

    Emma says:

    I'm in again! I've made 120 quilts and have about 30 currently on-the go, partially-designed, or waiting their turn – most of which (plus a number of new additions) should be done by the end of the year.

    Trish says:

    This should be fun. Have links set up, let's hope it works.

    Lynne says:

    Thank you Amy. This is really fun and is my first because I only started quilting in Feb so I am a baby but here's a festival where the remedial quilters like myself get a chance to sit alongside the royalty of quilting which is really cool. My favourite quilts are the ones that get properly used – dragged around the house by the kids, dragged into the garden to make a tent, slid on down the stairs, occasionally weed on (you know kids…). Now I am going to take my laptop into the sunny garden (rare for the UK) and take a stroll around the festival. Maybe see you there for a cup of coffee!

    thanks Amy for hosting the festival again! I can't tell you how many quilts I have made cuz I can't believe it has been about 17 years of quilting passion all ready! too many to count!

  44. 44
    Leah says:

    Thanks for hosting this again – great fun! It's not only fun to consider what I've made up that's meaningful, but also to realise how little I've actually finished this year (I guess it has really been about the process!)

  45. 45
    CraftyMummy says:

    Thanks for organising the BQF! This is my first time entering.

    I've just finished this particular quilt but I have made around 10 quilts. I currently have a couple of tops waiting to quilt, a jelly roll quilt half pieced, and 2 baby quilts in progress as well. My list of quilts I want to make is long :)

    Steffi´s Candy Quilts says:

    Thank you Amy for doing this festival, it is always so much fun to see all the wonderful quilts.
    Until now I finished around 15 big quilts, several wall hangings and pillows, and some very tiny quilts in 1/10 scale for my doll´s house.
    And of corse I have a lot of UFOs. :-)

    Mary says:

    Hi Amy – First, I just want to say, "thank you" for once again putting this fabulous event together – I stayed up until midnight and then realized – duh! You're on MDT, not EDT – lol.

    How many quilts have I made? Probably around 50. How about the "to do" list? Probably 30 (and I've probably already got the fabric for most of them – yikes!)

    Jackie says:

    Amy, Thanks for holding such a wonderful festival. Love to look at all the quilts!

    I have written my post, linked it, and now I am going to go and see and read about all the quilts of the others'! Thanks for your work again, Amy!

    I haven't finished a new quilt for the Festival, but am sharing an old favourite :-) Recently I was working on a present for my sister, a bag, which can be seen in my blog.

    Have a great weekend!

    Valentina says:

    Dear Amy, I only started visiting blogs a year ago, around the time you had the first BQF, and I was dazzled! Now a year later, with a fairly new blog, I cannot describe the thrill of being able to Thank YOU, and to be able to contribute my 2 cents.
    I started quilting when we moved to Cyprus, as I could speak no Greek and was in a general state of shell-shock! And quilting slowly passed from being therapy, to being a way to make friends, to the point that now I teach patchwork and quilting at the island's only QS.
    I have made many quilts, most of which have been gifts to loved ones and charity quilts. These days I hand-piece as it is more manageable with 3&4yr old boys! THANKS 4 Being such an INSPIRATION!

    Busy Little Quilter says:

    Hi, Amy! Thanks for organizing this! I wish I could tell you how many quilts I have made, but I have lost count!
    I am looking forward to seeing everyone's quilts and reading their stories.

    Nadine Saupe says:

    All these wonderful blogs. thanks for organizing this Amy.

    And as to your questions: I can't remember how many quilts I made, maybe around 20 or so, and given that they are all reversible quilts these days they should count twice, shouldn't they?

    I am working on about 5 projects at the moment, as I do everything by hand the quilting takes me ages. But I have already cut the fabric for the next 2 quilts. It's an obsession that's for sure.

    Hi Amy! I'm so excited to be involved in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! It's one of the reasons I started a blog this year. I've been quilting for one year now and the second quilt I made was your zig zag quilt a long. It's proudly displayed on my quilt rack and a favorite around here for snuggling on the couch. Thanks for always being so inspiring.

    Let me add my thanks!

    I'm a newbie when it comes to the art of quilting and was very nervous about even thinking about jumping in, but I got over myself…{wink}

    I shared one of my first quilts and it's one of my favorites.

    I'm excited to see everyone's contributions!

    Amy, thanks so much for this gargantuan effort; you're one-of-a-kind!

    Hi Amy,

    I wish we lived closer. I finished the quilt in time for the festival. I had a bit of binding to finish yesterday, so I tried out your tutorial. I liked it. I have a quilt coming back to me next week so I am going to try out the whole binding done that way. Thanks for your amazing work.

    I have been creating textiles for more than 23 years now. I also teach quiltmaking throughout the Pacific Northwest. My entry, The Cow Pony, is a quilt I created to help me through a very difficult time in my life last year. I hope you will watch the slideshow of the making of this quilt.
    My Best To You,

    Sweet! Made it through 145 links this morning. My quilt isn't quite ready for posting, but I should have it finished up by the weekend's close. *grin* I love the Festival! It's such fun to see everyone's work and meet new people. Thank you, Amy, for organizing!

    My tally is 5 finished quilts & 7 in progress since I started quilting in 2008 — I tend to get distracted…

    Thanks for doing this again and letting me share my antique quilts. I was happy to see your post last week from HMQS with my antique hexagon quilt–glad you enjoyed my special exhibit. I think the antique quilts are a good contrast to the new ones.

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful festival! I have submitted a piece that has never been shown on American soil and holds dear memories for me.

    I have encouraged all my readers to make time to curl up with their laptops to enjoy this literal feast for the eyes!

    This quilt is super special. Our DD#2 is at long last going to have a baby …. she just turned 35 and was told she'd never have a baby.

    Button is on my blog. I did Mr. Linky.

    Gosh I have no idea how many quilts I've made. I'm a charity quilter so I donate many quilts each year.

    Just linked my quilt to the festival. Love this!! I think I have done about 8 quilts (small ones so I can do the machine quilting myself). Almost done with my next one using Heather Bailey Nicey Jane fabric. Just couldn't get it done in time.

    Thanks for hosting!!

    Karin says:

    Amy, I have been inspired by the blogger's links on your old quilt festival posts for a long time, and I am very happy to be part of one this time around! I have been quilting since I was 20 with my mom. I made my first quilt on my own when I was 22 years old, a log cabin. I still have that quilt and it is on my youngest son's bed. My entry to the festival is my second quilt I made on my own and it resides on my bed. I took a long hiatus from quilting while my kids grew up, but when my oldest went to college, I heavily got into it. I have so many flimsy's ready to quilt now, the quilting is my least favorite part! Karin

    Meg says:

    Thank you so much for this, Amy. It is awe-inspiring!!

    I've only completed three quilts, all of which have been given as gifts. One of these days, I will actually finish one that stays home with me!

    phipstick says:

    I love the idea of having hundreds of quilters sharing inspiration! I've only been quilting since November, and only had my own blog since April, but it's nice to know that there are people who are just as passionate about weird things (like fabric and quilts) as I am! Thanks for creating the Festival!

    I've finished about eight or ten quilts and probably have about six quilts in various stages of construction going on right now.

    What a great list of giveaways your fabulous sponsors have donated! Fingers crossed!

    jomaj says:

    Thanks for doing this – it's my "FIRST TIME" putting one of my quilts out there. I liked the mental exercise of choosing the quilt and the why's behind the choice. Since my Bernina is out of service, this was a nice way to still enjoy quilting!

  178. 178
    Kimberly says:

    I am currently only in the middle of two quilts. However I am needing to make 4 soon. I have a friend who is having a baby any day now, plus I promised my children I would get their quilts made.
    My daughter's is one of the top that is finished. It needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. However, I am no longer in love with the quilt and not dying to finish it. Which is probably why it has been sitting for four years! :P
    Thank you for organizing the Quilt Festival. I love it!

    Whew! Made it just in time to join in the fun. My blog posts these days are few and far between, but I just finished a special quilt this month for my son and wanted to share, only to find it was the last day to enter the Festival. Great timing! Can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts. I enjoyed it so much last time. Thanks for everything you do!

    Sandi says:

    Amy, Thanks for doing this! I did it backwards…left the comment and then posted….but now it's done right. I am very fond of the little quilt that I shared. I love making small wall quilts and especially enjoy working by hand. If I count the tiny dollhouse baby quilts that I've made, the number is about 75. I enjoy sharing them at local quilt guilds and in programs for church women's groups. :-)

    Janet says:

    Hi Amy, Thanks for organizing this great show. I'm not posting anything – no blog, new computer, never posted on flickr, shy, etc. But I am really enjoying looking at what other people have posted and I'm trying to comment on them all. I haven't finished any full size quilts on my own yet although I've got six on the go right now. I've worked with some quilting friends to make quilts to give away for co-workers, made lots of baby quilts and other things like bags, wallhangings and table runners. The first quilt I ever started was the year I was married (33 years ago). It was an applique quilt and thinking back on it the colours were ghastly – green on green, solid fabrics. Anyway it burnt when our home burned about six months after we were married. It was about two thirds done. I didn't quilt again until about five years ago. Thanks for a chance to win one (or more :)) of those fabulous prizes.

    Caroline ~ TrilliumDesign says:

    Awesome Amy!! Thank-you so much for doing this. This is my first ever quilt festival – either online or real-life – how fun! I'm very new to quilting, just started this year and have made about 4 quilts so far and 3 doll quilts on top of that. It's very addicting – i think you could safely say i'm not giving up this sport! :)

  225. 225
    Angela says:

    What a wondeful group of posts and giveaways. I'm working on my first quilt now, a hand pieced grandmother's flower garden using the paper piecing method and 30's reproductions…did I mention yet that it is king sized? Yeah I've got 61 of the 80 "flowers" done and am starting on the pathway. For a first project I figure it is pretty big so am not feeling bad that it has gotten this far in about 8 months. I will have it done before the end of the year so I'm excited!

  226. 226
    Melanie says:

    I browsed through so many of the quilts from last year that I decided to take up quilting!! 6 quilts and one year later, I finally got to participate:)

    This is my first time participating in this Festival and how much fun this is! I've completed 140 quilts (of various sizes … some small, some VERY LARGE) and probably have half as many on my To Do list. :-) I love sewing, quilting … any creative sort of needlework … it feeds my soul and makes me happy. (which, in turn, makes me a happy wife and mother. :-) )

    Hi Amy, thanks for hosting! Since the first of the year I have made 5 quilts, in my lifetime I am not sure how many; I stopped quilting when the kids were really little and life was to crazy, but now that they are a bit older (and learning to sew themselves)I have jumped back into quilting with both feet! So many WIP going thru my head that I have listed them on my blog so I can keep track.

    Thank you for hosting this festival. It will be cool to look through everyone's entries.

    The quilt I linked to is my 4th or 5th quilt. I am now working on my 7th or so. I have many many more on my wish list to do. I'm currently working on one with Wonderland fabrics from Momo.

    Cynthia says:

    Hi Amy! This is such a good idea– and so fun! I even made a new blog just so I could participate (family blog is private ;) I've made about 35 or 40 quilts and always have 4 or 5 either in the planning or making stage. Ahhh…quilting. :)

    Thanks for hosting the Quilt Festival. I just made my 1st quilt festival post!

    I have been quilting for about 1 year. In that year I have made 12 quilts. I have so many on my todo list it isn't even funny…I just can't seem to stop adding new projects and buying new fabric!

    Anita in Florida says:

    Thanks for doing this again Amy. This is the second time for me…great fun. I picked a quilt that had been in my closet probably since I made it…along with about 15 other quilts!

    Allie says:

    Yay – I'm linked! Thanks Amy, this is always such fun – I'm going to be joined at the hip to my computer for the next few days/weeks/months, lol. I always enjoy this so much!

    I thought about making a quilt just for the Festival, but as always I left it too late, lol. I ended up using one that taught me the most, and it's a definite favorite.

    I have no idea how many quilts I've made…I've been quilting for over 20 years now-but I can tell you its alot and the fun never stops. I'm always finding new things to try and new designs to challenge myself with.

    Celine says:

    Thanks for organising the festival. This is my first participation. How many quilts I have made? I have counted about 2 but this is without the bags and other objects. How many quilts I have on my to do/wish list: probably an infinite number, which will get even worse after blog hopping during the festival…

    I just posted my link. This is my first time joining in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I added my most recent finished quilt as it is my favorite thus far. It is the 9th quilt I've ever made, and my 6th quilt this year. I've made a personal goal to make 12 quilts this year, so I'm at the halfway mark. :) Looking forward to seeing all the other entries! Thanks!

    Hi Amy, I do love quilt show! Thanks for organizing this great event! I've been quilting for about 30 years and have made many, many quilts…some good ones and some, not so wonderful! But it has been a lovely hobby to have through the years.

    Claudia says:

    This is a wonderful and fun event! I'm thrilled to enter a quilt into the festival. I'm not sure how many quilts I've made to date, it's really about the process for me, not the quantity. I've been quilting for about 5 years and am always inspired by my fellow quilters from the online quilting community.

    Andrea says:

    Well imagine my lucky timing. I'm sewing binding on a quilt tonight/this weekend and will be able to write a post in time to make your deadline :).

    This will be my 4th quilt, the 2nd that is larger than a twin size quilt.

    I've got fabric sitting for 4 quilts which I hope to get to soon. Right now I seem to have a one year turn around on quilts (see my timing is very lucky, LOL) … I'd like to speed that up by a few months ;).

    Thanks so much … I can't wait to grab an iced tea and click through all the inspiration!!

    meli B says:

    Hi there, thanks for organising this Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am a first time entry because I am very new to blogging. I have been working with textiles for the last 30 years but patch working for about 10 or so. I think I have made about 30 quilts and they are scattered all over my house. The hubby and kids roll themselves up in them over the winter and they are in every room of the house. Patch working is my refuge and I am totally addicted to buying more fabric and making new things. I have a stack of my husband's old shirts ready to be made into something – possibly squares made from triangles so the lines on the fabric nearly match up or the Indigo Points quilt from Fassett's latest book. There are usually a few things on the go at the same time. I only get weekends to really get stuck into my sewing and every week a new idea pops into my head. Some get made and some don't. It's all fun.

    O'Quilts says:

    Wow..this is my first time joining your festival. I have been quilting for about 37 years..forever, but new to blogging. Your blog and your festival are a delightful contribution to the quilting community. Thank you. Diane from Charlotte, North Carolina

    MomBrose says:

    Yay! I'm in! :) I'm thinking of making my next project a quilt for Reagan's bed (a full/queen). Nothing like jumping in with both feet huh? :D Have you ever used a duvet cover, added batting in between and then quilted it?? I found an awesome duvet cover and the thought crossed my mind. Not sure how it would work though….
    Thanks for working so hard to bring the festival to fruition. May God bless you tenfold (and give you health and rest!).

    What an amazing festival! Thanks Amy & all the sponsors for this event. I finished my festival quilt a few weeks ago, but I waited to post it until now. It's fun to be able to share something new… and find the inspiring works of other quilters I wouldn't normally cross paths with!

    Thanks for hosting Amy. I've recently started quilting and actually only have one finished quilt top (and two that have been cut and are waiting for a beginning). I hope it's alright if I share a quilt that was made for me in my post. I love seeing everyone's projects and getting even more inspired (just need to find more time in the day).

    Something to keep me busy for the next few days. Can't wait to see all the pretty quilts. I've made probably 20+ easy minkee baby blankets that don't require quilting but probably between 10 and 15 real quilts. It is very addictive. Now that I'm retired I hope to do lots more and get better at my free motion quilting.

    There, I've done it. I've actually entered a quilt in a show of some sort, even if it is just online. Thanks for the fun and the chance to win!

    Rhonda says:

    This is a great way to see all the great work everyone is doing. I've been piecing quilt for over 20 years and learning new and different things every step of the way. My aunt inspired and challenged me to find a better way of doing things other than hand piecing. I taught her to piece a log cabin by machine in 1988. I've since made around 40 log cabins.
    I made my first feathered star about a month ago and am experimenting with that. Quilting is exciting and quilters motivating!

    I've enjoyed quilting and especially this quilt because it was a surprise for my sister…and she was REALLY surprised!! I loved it!

    WhoooHoooooo Amy!! Love, love, love the Fest….thanks so much for all your hard work and all that I have learned from you!

    Hmmmmm….too many WIPs….and I think since last May when I found the ORBC I have sewn over thirty quilts and at least that many table runners and toppers!

    My mind is full and my fingers are itching to get the ideas out!;)

    Laurel H. says:

    It is hard to say how many quilts I have sewn, because I've done very simple ones–possibly over a hundred of them–and given them away to charity. I'm looking in my flickr set, and I see about 27; I've given away 18 of those, and I just finished one, and one's not counted, so there are maybe 11 in the house. (Wow, that many? They're in many different places…)

    I actually recently wrote a "I'd love to make this quilt" list, and I think there are {gulp} at least a dozen on there!

    Thanks for doing this, Amy. It pushes me to keep moving forward in my quilting, and to create with an eye for display (so that means stepping up my level of craftsmanship!).

    (By the way, you don't have to enter me in the drawings; I've won a couple of things recently, and I'd like to "share the love…")

  322. 322
    Megan says:

    I'm so excited to start trolling through all the links! Thank you thank you thank you for doing all the legwork to get this up and running!! It really is one of the coolest aggregations of craftiness out there in blogland! (not that I'm biased towards quilting or anything) :)

    BJ says:

    Amy, this is such a great idea of yours. Thanks for doing it for us. It's so great to get inspired by others' wonderful work. I've made about 50 quilts since I started quilting in 2001. I have more than 30 fabric collections ready to be made into quilts, but I haven't finalized the patterns I will use for many of them. That's my hangup. I modify all my quilt patterns. They sort of evolve as I make them most of the time. I love the creative process that produces a quilt, but my favorite part is putting the fabrics together.

    Jeanne says:

    WOW, this is fun, I am a vintage fabric kinda girl so most of my quits are older quilts that are family quilts that I have "Saved" and proudly show off to anyone who will look at them. I do quilt and I have probably made about 10-20 quilts, started when our Girls were little, went thru quite a few on their beds, LOL. Now I am on a vintage linens kick so working on quilts made of recycled sheets and pillowcases, being green and making beautiful quilts at the same time. So go check out my blog, I am putting up one of my favorie quilts, so enjoy looking. THANKS FOR HOSTING THIS. I am going to try to hook up with your button, but am not all that savy so hopefully it works.

    Tonya says:

    Thank you so much for organizing this festival. I really love this idea. The spring festival last year, was kind of a motivation for me to start my own blog. I also had just started quilting, so it feels like a significant milestone for me. I didn't finish a quilt specifically for the festival this time, but I had this past fall. I have something like 6 quilts in the queue. I hope to have at least 3 to choose from for the fall. Thanks again, this is a lot of fun.

    I can't wait to check out all the quilts! I currently have three quilts in progress. They are waiting for me to finish some dresses for my girls for a wedding we are going to in June. I know that I made about 16 quilts last year, I have no idea of a lifetime number, but now that you mention it, I want to start keeping track.

    I just posted my link…this is the first time I've joined, so I'm psyched! Have sewed forever, but never was interested in quilting until a little over a year ago…now, I think of nothing else except what I'm working on, what I want to work on, what I should be working on…well, you get the idea. ADDICTED!!! Okay, I'm off to go visit some blogs! Thank you for doing this, Amy…it is great fun!

    This is my first year entering, so thanks for doing this! I entered my "quilt of insanity" hexagon quilt.
    I've made a dozen or so quilts, some rag quilts, some more involved, but it's always something that I enjoy. I have two quilts in the works. One I am hand quilting right now, and another I just got the fabric for and I'm excited to get going on it.

    Ooops! I almost forgot to leave a comment here! Here's something about me and my quilting: I'm very good at starting and finishing quilt tops, which then sit in a nice, neatly folded pile. I'm too afraid to go count them, but 8 is a good guess right now! Thanks for hosting the Festival and thanks to the sponsors!

    Jill and Cameron says:

    This is the first time I've ever entered an online quilt festival! HOW FUN!!! The quilt I entered was the 3rd one I've ever made and I just finished a fourth with 3 more in the works. I love getting ideas from other quilters. Thank you again for doing such a fun online festival!!!!

    Thanks for offering this WONDERFUL Festival! I do appreciate all your hard work. You asked for some information about me … how about "I ordered my new sewing machine today?" I'm getting a Janome Horizon – that machine just hit the shops, and it seems to be perfect ;-))

    Thanks Amy for organizing this! This is going to be so fun!

    I have about 12 projects in the works, but I really am trying SO hard to get that down to just 3, 4 or 5. I would be so happy with that.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Amy! Thanks for doing this, it's so much fun. Although I have quite a few quilts I plan to make right now, I'm working on two baby quilts, for two old friends who just had babies about the same time I had my baby this year. It is so much fun to commemorate such a special event with a quilt. Thanks again!

    I love your quilt festivals!
    I am becoming a more active quilter, and I have a website in development that will be devoted to quilting … hoping to have it up soon. For now, I'm sharing my personal blog (which has turned into more of a crafty-quilt blog, when I remember to update it).
    I have finished 5 quilts since the new year, and have one in progress. I find so much inspiration in the quilt-blog community and I can't wait to browse through all of the entries.

    oh my gosh, this is such a success. I can't wait to visit even more of these blogs.

    I have no idea how many quilts I've made. I do try to document each one, but am finding that I've not been doing all that well. The one chosen for this Festival somehow missed so I will be doing up documentation for it tomorrow. Glad you helped me to catch that lapse.

    Thanks Amy for organizing this fun.

    elettaria says:

    I think there's been an error with my previous two comments, probably because I primarily use Firefox for my main blog and was logged in on Internet Exploder for my quilting blog. So this one links to my main blog, but there's a link in the sidebar to my quilting blog, plus I'm #401 on the list.

    This festival is a fantastic idea and I'm so pleased to be joining in! I've been quilting for three years now and sew everything by hand, although I do plan to learn how to use a sewing machine sooner or later.

    How could you do this to me? Over 420 quilts to look at – how on earth am I going to find time for housework or cooking this week? Thanks for doing this for us, I took part in the last one and met some great people.

    Dear Amy, thanks for organizing and hosting such a wonderful virtual festival! I'm new to it, first time I've heard of it and first time I'm participating. I've finished 14 UFO's earlier this year, and currently I'm working on log cabin blocks for 2 lap quilts. I hope I've done it right, the links and all that, I mean… :)

    Juliann says:

    This is an amazing response! So many lovely blogs to visit and such great community. Thanks. A few years ago, I took pictures of all my unfinished projects. They totaled 45. I have finished a number of them and added a few. I think I am at 35 now so making some headway.

    When I got on yesterday to link my post the linky wasn't there and I was so bugged that I had missed out! There was even a message that said the entering was closed. Okay, maybe I somehow got onto a previous years? Then it said you weren't accepting any comments – I really think my computer was messing with me because all is fine this morning!
    Thank you for all your hard work in hosting this festival.
    Can't wait to sit back in my recliner and see everyone's quilts.

    Thank you Amy for providing this wonderful show of quilts. I so enjoy getting around to see as many as possible. I first found out about the first festival and was only an observer. By the second one I had made my own blog and was able to participate for the first time. SO this spring I made my second entry. Many thanks for your dedication to this project.

    Amy, thanks for hosting another Bloggers' Quilt Festival! It's always so much fun, and this time around I even have a finished quilt I can enter. Actually, it's my only finished quilt so far, but I have two more in the works at the moment.

    Best wishes from Germany,

    piecemealquilts says:

    Thanks for organizing this – and keeping it going for three "seasons". I've been quilting for about five or six years, and I've found that quilting can serve as a form of therapy. It's certainly done more for my mental health than just about anything else I've tried! That's actually how I chose my entry – the quilt that got me back on the path to happiness.

    Hello Amy!

    This is completely awesome, what you have here. Holding an online quilting festival is too cool!

    This is only my second quilt, and I'm super proud of it. I already have three more quilts I'm working on (one pattern does three quilts at a time), and have ideas for at least 4 more in my head. I can't help but get excited! Holding back from starting them all is a hard task!

    Cindy says:

    Blessings to you for all the time you devote to hosting the Quilt Festivals. I just love them and am honored to be a part of a fast growing festival.

    Blessings to all those who participate in this fun event.

    Hi Amy,
    I did 2 things wrong. First I posted my comment before I made my post. Second I posted the link to my blog instead of the blog post for the festival. Sorry for the inconvenience, and hopefully one day I will get this blogging, and computer thing learned. I am a self taught quilter for about 3-4 years now, and have been blogging since Sept. of 2009.
    Thank You for hosting this.
    I love your blog.

    What a wonderful idea and I'm looking forward to checking out all the great quilts and links! I couldn't figure out how to use the httml code, but did link your site to my post. I didn't have time to make something new for this, but am showing an older quilt I made that had a story and was fun to do. Thanks for hosting this.

    earth visitor says:

    I seem to give all my quilts away – I have MS – so it take me a while to to make them – cutting is a big challenge from a wheelchair – I do qults for kids and it seems like every time I get any other quilt made there is someone in the community that is in need of comfort, so I make arrangements to have it delivered – quilt making is my ministry

    This is amazing! What a great response this season :)

    Let's see…this quilt was my 4th or 5th completed, and I currently have 7 (7?!) quilts in process. I have recently joined an online quilting bee, which has proven to be both a great creative outlet and a source for new ideas and techniques. The quilting blog community never ceases to amaze me :)

    I came across this quite by accident and have really been enjoying looking at the quilts. Thank you so much for hosting it…I was not even going to enter till a friend pointed out that it is open till May 28th. I hope you have half as much fun as I am having.

    I love reading all the great posts in the new Blogger's Quilt Festival! Thanks so much for organizing this again. It's awesome!

    I just added my entry in Mr. Linky.

    I don't know how many quilts I've made…maybe 20. I started quilting when my kiddos were little…I wanted to be the grandmother who quilted. I now have 5 grandbabies and one on the way. I just finished the quilt top today for the baby boy due in August.

    Hi Amy,

    Can't believe I stumbled upon your quilt festival. What a great idea! My entry is very understated. I do hope people enjoy it. Not the traditional quilt but still a quilt that took a lot of time. Thought I would go for something different to the usual colourful cotton quilts.

    Thanks so much for hosting this, Amy! It's been an incredible experience – I'm a BQF rookie and this won't be my last, that's for sure!

    I am not sure how many quilts I've made. Maybe 30? The number of projects on my to-do list? Well, now that is definitely more than 30 if you count my "one day"'s…

    Lisa says:

    I finished my 1st quilt a year ago this month! And have completed 42 lap quilts since then — amazing what you can accomplish in a year! I made the quilt I entered back in January and it was my first "i designed it" quilt!

    Thanks SO MUCH for this … can't wait to spend some time this week checking out everyone elses quilts!

    Oddbjørg says:

    Thanks a lot for hosting this Quilt Festival! I love to visit the blogs and see so many beautiful quilts.
    I have just posted my entry. I don't know how many quilts I have made, but I started quilting about 15 years ago. I enjoy "playing" with bits and pieces. As many others I have too much in my stash, but I like to make useful things out of scraps. I enjoy every minute I can find for handicrafts – it gives me a lot.
    I have you on my blog list. Your blog is great!

    Hi Amy! Great show again! I've been making quilts for over 25 years, and I don't have a clue how many I've made. I give most of them away, and I tell every person I give one to that quilts are really hugs from me! Thanks for doing this. It's a lot of fun!

    Jeremy says:

    This is so fun to participate in! A couple of interesting things about me, one that may set me apart from the 'main stream quilters' and another that shows how ________ (insert word here- i.e., crazy, nuts, impatient, etc) I am.

    First, I am a man… A few male quilters out there, but not many in comparison. And second, I wanted to join a virtual quilting bee, couldn't find one so I ended up starting 3 and then joining 2 more all in the same month. Crazy is probably the word you would choose, right? :)

    Jessica says:

    Hi, Amy! Thanks for doing another festival. It's always so much fun to flip through everyone's links. :)

    I've made probably somewhere around 2 dozen quilts. Most of them are baby quilts and I only have 1 of my own quilts in my possession.

    The quilt I entered (the Bastille Baby Quilt) is a quilt I made a few months ago for my soon-to-arrive nephew. I'm currently working on a quilt-along using the pattern I made for the quilt.

    The quilt I've had in my WIP pile the longest has been there for 6 years. It's for my friend, Michael. For whatever reason, I just can't bring myself to finish it. The top has been finished on it for about the whole 6 years. I just can't finish it for some reason.

    Thanks again for the festival!

    meguey says:

    Thanks for hosting this again! I'm 39 and have been quilting seriously since I was 18. Before that it was just occasionally helping my mom cut patches for the quilts she hand-pieced. Last year I made a dozen baby quilts and around half a dozen bed quilts. All the baby quilts have been delivered, and half the bed quilts donated to local agencies. Sometimes I think I need more beds!

    Well, this will keep me busy for a few days, won't it? What a fabulous amount of entries – you should be very proud, missus!

    Strangely, I've been quilting one year almost to the day!! And I've just counted and I'm working on quilts number 19 and 20!! Okay, so one of those is a doll quilt and two were for prams but still. Not bad I reckon!! Plus number 20? Is my first double bed sized. How I'm going to quilt it I have no clue!!

I am new to quilting- I have made just 3 baby quilts, and only in the past month, and have been drinking in all the info and stalking amazing blogs like yours to soak up all the tips I can! I absolutely love quilting. My contribution is my very first quilt, and it is set to be donated to the NICU at our local Children's Hospital. Thanks for the Festival, it is so fu to see everyone's creations!

    Hello Amy,
    Thank you for your work for hosting this event.
    I have been a seamstress for many many years. But I just recently started making quilt. so I don't have so many quilts finished. But I have so many quilts I want to make in the future. I believe that makes my life happier pretty much.

    Hi Amy! I am so excited to be a part of Quilt Festival this year. We "met" last year when you led the zig zag quilt along. What fun that was!! I have finished a few since then, mostly for other people. My festival entry is brand spanking new and I made it just because. : ) It is a family quilt, although my daughter says its for her. She's two, I will humor her.

    What fun this is!!! I'm a little late, but not too, I hope! I loved sharing my quilt and story on my blog. I've been quilting for years, and have made dozens of quilts, with dozens more in the works. Seems there is always a new quilt to make, doesn't it?! And I am inspired by so many quiltie peeps out there. I love to get my quiltie mojo going by spending time blog-hopping or on flickr. Yummy yum yum Thanks so much for hosting this! xotammy

    Thanks for hosting this! I've completed about 20 quilts by now? I was hoping to finish a new one for this festival but ran out of the right color thread and time. I have four more quilts started and another two that need to be started!

    What a great idea!! This is my first time entering and I look forward to more. I have been quilting for 15 years, have made over 100 quilts and have quilted over 200 for my clients. Thanks for organizing this Amy. From a Northern Canadian quilter.

    My mom calls me Beth says:

    Well, I finally did it! Thank you, Amy, for putting this together…what a wonderful way to show and tell with so many others!

    I have been quilting a while, but mainly for pleasure and a way to escape. Sometimes, I can turn a little revenue over. My problem is that I allow myself to get distracted by my stash wall, & then have a hard time seeing all my quilts through to their logical (useful) conclusions! There must be a dozen uncompleted quilts in my closet (in various stages – tops only, sandwiches with some quilting, sandwiches w/o quilting…). But, it is always fun to plan a new quilt, right?

    2010 found me promising myself to finish off my stack of begun projects, and limit myself in the creating dept until I get all else under control. Ha, good luck to me!

    Thanks again for the opportunity and the fun site!

    Oh my goodness! Over 600 quilts to look at for inspiration! I am SOO excited. I have already seen a couple of beautiful quilts that have the wheels in my head turning! Thanks for a great opportunity to share and inspire!

    Rose Marie says:

    My entry was my 50th quilt that I made. My first quilt was for a baby and my 50th for a young lad. So far, I've made 78 quilts with the last one made for a child as well. Quilts and children go so well together.

    It is amazing the number of bloggers who have participated this year. Bravo to you for organizing this event!!!

    Michele Bilyeu says:

    My favorite quilt is ALWAYS the one that I'm working on. And since they almost all get donated to charity…I've learned to love them and leave them in a hurry. But I always know that my love, my heart and the work of my hands, goes with each and every quilt…so no wonder each one is my favorite!!!! I've included my links in my latest post with a photo of my latest quilt…a combination of styles and liberated free-pieced back which I named What Kind of Quilter Are You? as in goes along with a fun description of all of the parts of ourselves as quilters that make up who we are! And you dear, Amy, seem to pull all of us together, several times a year in a fun and awesome way!

    Wow…what awesome inspiration!!! Thanks for organizing this.
    I have made about 30 finished quilts but have another 50 quilt top "flimsies" ready to quilt and finish. Just keep wanting to make more and more…thanks to all this inspiration.

    Laura says:

    This is so cool! The quilt that I linked for the festival is actually my first quilt ever- and I just finished it this morning! I guess you could say I finished it just for the festival- I was motivated to finish it by tomorrow at least just so I could share it! I already have a second (baby) quilt sandwiched and about 1/5th quilted- I'm addicted! Thanks for hosting this festival- it is so neat to see all the beauitful quilts, marvel at the creativity and skills and reading all of the stories behind them!

    Holy Macaroni! I'm #615! That's a whole lot of quilts. Thanks so much for hosting the festival – it is a lot of fun to see what everyone has been working on.

    Recently I was given a couple of quilts that my grandma made decades ago. It's been fun to admire them and have them as inspiration,

    Thanks! This is such a great festival!

    I have been quilting off and on for a few years. I have finished probably about 10 or so quilts.
    I feel like I have a lot to learn!
    Thanks again!

    Thearica says:

    Thank you so much for this opportunity to share our quilts! I started quilting when I was 19 and have no idea how many quilts I have made throughout my lifetime. I have made and sold several quilts and given many away. I have 4 quilts that are mine but they are made with blocks that I have swapped with friends. I have never just made a quilt from scratch just for me. Maybe I need to do that. My granddaughter has 9 quilts and she is only 6!! I learned to quilt through my grandmothers and love everything about it!

    Woohoo! Finally got my post up! The quilt that I'm showing is actually one that I designed to take with me to International Quilt Market last week, and it's one of the first that will actually stay here and live with me!

    Personalized Sketches and Sentiments says:

    Yay! I was able to finally finish my post for your amazing Quilt Festival! (I am slow! :o)

    I am excited and look forward to visiting as many wonderful quilters as I can.

    I need your help…I linked up directly to my blog instead of my post…is there any way to fix that? I'm #626

    Blessings & Aloha!

    Garilyn says:

    This was a great idea! I'm so glad I was able to participate this year. My grandmother was a quilter and I'm just praying that I can one day be as good as she was!!

    I have only made a few quilts, nothing bigger than toddler/lap size, though I have a twin size rag quilt that needs finishing!

    RaisinCookies says:

    Oh, I'm excited — I thought I had missed the deadline and so didn't even think to enter. I was wrong, happily!

    Thanks for hosting this. It has been really interesting to read about other people's quilts and the stories behind them. In my opinion, it's the stories that make the quilts so very beautiful….

    Leah says:

    Just tonight, I finished my 7th quilt top! I started quilting December 2009! I only have 2 tops created that need to be quilted & bound & 2 baby quilts that are just waiting for some TV time for me to hand sew the binding to the back. I absolutely love this form of creative expression! Thank you for hosting this festival & opening my eyes to so many wonderfully talented people out there! :)

    Sabine says:

    Thanks for hosting this really cool festival. I love making scrap quilts, probably because I have been quilting for a long time (how many quilts – no clue , but more than 50) and there is so much fabric in my house. Certainly enough for brand new scrap quilts for the next decade´s quilts festivals…

  607. 607
    greenbuttonstudio says:

    Thanks so much for creating and hosting this amazing space! I look forward to finding new inspiration and spending A LOT of time staring at my computer screen. Just started quilting last summer and have another free summer filled with quilty plans. Hope to complete a quilt a month.

    tracylee says:

    I love the quilt festival! I have probably made a dozen or so quilts, but I have quite a few I am working on or have plans for making. I enjoy seeing all of the quilts and being inspired by the stories that go with them!

    Cecily says:

    Amy, thanks so much for hosting The Blogger's Quilt Festival… it inspired me to start a blog!! Hope you enjoy it. I've been quilting since 2005 (when I got my first sewing machine). So far I am entirely self-taught, but plan on taking some classes soon. I also have never used a pattern for any of my quilts… I made them all up.

  612. 612
    Zlaty says:

    Thank you Amy for organizing the Blogger's festival for third time!

    I have entered every time! I was out of town, but better late then never , right?! :)

    I should count how many quilts I have made! Currently I am working on two baby quilts for a friend of mine and for my nephew. Also I am working on quilting my blue and yellow quilt that I have been piecing a long time.

    Have a great day Amy and i hope everybody is getting over that flu!

    Thanks for hosting this! I think I've made around 20 quilts. Its funny — when I was trying to figure it out I was basically listing my friends' kids names to myself. Mostly baby quilts and about 5 twin sized quilts and about 5 picnic quilts.

  617. 617

    Kim's Crafty Apple says:

    Thanks so much for doing this again! I'm pretty sure I've entered all of them and just love it! Hmmm…how many quilts have I made – probably in the 50s range – most likely more. I've had two babies and for the nesting portion I quilt instead of clean :) Very productive :)

    Thanks again!

    amylouwho says:

    Amy! What an awesome job you've done, again! I wish I had my quilt finished, I'm so close. I just have to stitch on the binding. I have pics of my mom's quilt that she's finished. Maybe I'll try and get a post up about that. It's gorgeous!

    The move is over and we are now camping out at my in-laws until we can move into our house, about 10 days from now!

    Hi Amy! I'm late to the party as usual… but I showed up! I have about 25 projects going right now… I won't allow myself to have any more because I'm out of baskets to store my projects in! Looking forward to seeing all the quilts in the festival!

    Sooz says:

    Thanks for walking me through entering this Festival. I'm so glad I did! I've been quilting for good, long time, but discovered the Modern Quilt bloggy-world about a year ago, and I'm hooked. I'm a novice at blogging, but determined to shake my Luddite tendencies. Sometimes I get frustrated because I spend time figuring out the bloggy bits, time I could be quilting! But the inspiration and community I've found here is more than worth it. A friend told me that one of the first communities "built" when the Web started were quilters! Now I can't wait to continue poring over all 700 other entries. Keep up the good work, Amy. And thanks.

    Gladys says:

    Hola, Amy! No sé si puedo participar, porque soy de Argentina y no tengo ningún edredón terminado, pero hoy tengo casi, casi listo mi primer Quilt!, al que sólo le falta el binding. La invito a verlo en este post:
    Espero le guste y la felicito por esta hermosa propuesta! A las novatas y autodidactas como yo (aprendo por lo que veo en la web, debido a que no hay instructoras en mi ciudad y casi nadie lo practica) nos permite ver mucha, mucha inspiración y admirar tanto tesón, trabajo y belleza creado por manos patcheras! Un fuerte abrazo!

    Amy I have no idea as to how you are going to read all these comments, much less visit all the entries! I just entered, unlucky number 666, with only 6 hours left…don't like those numbers! Oh well, what is a girl to do.

    I finished my quilt with two of your wonderful tutorials and wrote about it in my entry! Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the fun :)

    This is a great event…I think you just gave me homework, though, I'd love to figure out how many quilts I've made, I'll work on that. I must tell you though, that I work on MANY at a time. My in progress list is always over ten! But I'm trying to get better at finishing them more before starting new ones.

    MrsDragon says:

    I love watching the numbers on this post tick up! I've been planning to finish this quilt in time for the festival for ages and I *just* squeaked in. It's gift and I've avoided mentioning it online AT ALL before now, so this is it's grand debut. I am ridiculously excited and so happy to be part of the festival again. : )

    I'm a new quilter and it's amazing to see how many other quilter/blogger/moms are out there. I was working on a quilt for my mother-in-law when I saw your link yesterday, so I exhaustingly finished the quilt today just so I could join. Thanks so much for the work you do with this and I look forward to joining (with a little better planning) next year, too!

    This is my first entry in any quilt show ever, so thanks for hosting. I can't wait to go looking at all those quilts.
    I've made about 20 quilts/wall hangings/table runners, have 4 in progress and have been distracted along the way by numerous bags, wallets, dolls, toys and crochet. I'm truly addicted…

  643. 643
    John says:

    I got in just under the wire!! I have about 10 sets of quilt blocks that are all waiting to be sewn into quilt tops, including my blocks from every quilting bee I've participated in. Crazy, huh? I really hope to tackle those in this calendar year.

    Thanks again for hosting yet another successful BQF!!

    Hi Amy, The Blogger's Quilt Festival is a wonderful idea. This is the first one I've "been to". I have set myself aside some time each day to look through all the interesting blogs and be inspired by all the beautiful quilts.
    I can see I'll have to make a blog of my own one day soon.

    Vivian says:

    Just wanted to give a late shout out and THANKS for once again hosting this festival! I participated in the last two but was working on a deadline so didn't get to post this time.

    However, I still wanted to SEE EVERYTHING! Today I just finished looking at the last of the 677(!) entries. I've spent the last month taking them 25 or so a day (interrupted only by a week's vacation) stopping here and there to follow leads to other great quilty stuff.

    As before, I found a lot of great new blogs to follow, a bunch of new project ideas and even voted on my favorite postings and added them to my quilt journal for inspiration. I look forward to when you do this again in the fall or next spring and hope to participate then too. Thanks again for all your efforts!

  654. 654

    Well it’s taken me well over a month but I finally got to look at all the fab quilts. Why so long? well I kept getting distracted reading blogs, and following links and having a great time!

    Thank you Amy so much for arranging this – and I hope that I can join in next year
